Interesting tidbit I noticed when looking back at the 2006 season. In 2006 UNC lost to Miami and Virginia back-to-back with the former coming at home. After that UNC beat FSU in Tallahassee(to avoid a three game losing streak just like this season) then went 3-2 with losses to Boston College and Duke. The Heels traveled to Miami with a 5-4 ACC mark and 15-6 record. That Sunday night in Coral Cables, UNC pulled out a nice road win which was the start of an eight game winning streak culminating in a second place ACC finish.

I am not suggesting this team is the same as 2006 nor am I suggesting this is the start of some grand winning streak. This Miami team is top ten while that Miami team ended up being ranked in the 50s by KenPom. Still, it would be nice if the Tar Heels can find a way to steal a victory here. Such a win would be immensely valuable, especially if the Heels can put together 3-4 more ACC wins.

Comments if you have 'em.
